With Tarrant acquisition Gibbo won’t be required back for a while , expect to see him forward early on
Tarrant for 2 years.
JR for 1.
He'll be getting regular games in 2024 whichever position he ends up in

Is training with the defenders.
Dimma mentioned during the AGM that he could eventually be used as a swingman.
Doesn’t sound like they’re grooming him as a forward at this stage

Nope, far too early for him to try that, especially when we have the mercurial Balta who can be swung forward (especially since Tarrant arrived) as you have finally admitted. Hope you didn't think I missed it.

I said from day one that Balta was a defender.
You said he was a forward.
Guess who was right??
I’ll give you a hint. Not you

It's still early days for Balta. When we put Balta forward for that one quarter (3rd Q against WC last year if I remember correctly) he did look dangerous on the lead. His set shot wasn't much chop but he's got the burst of pace to make a dangerous leading forward.

I says early on , not 3y away, if it takes him that long to get a game he’ll join CCJ at nm
So he'll be playing forward next year? With Jack and Tom?
I dont know but I'd be surprised.
He seems a top talent so I'm rapt he is a Tiger

What's going on there?? Kid looks like he's got a chubby in his shorts from doing some crotch lifts. Couple to many reps maybe.
Whatever he's doing, it looks like really poor and risky technique. Hope he didn't pick it up on his orientation week at the Tigers.

No wonder our guys never sire boys!! :(

Well actually isn't he doing pelvic lifts?? If so would aid in the siring stakes

I have a variation of that exercise where I use my hands instead of weights
